In a city like KL where high-rise hotels (with 400 rooms and more) dominate the hospitality industry, small scale hotels (with 200 rooms and less) constitute as 'boutique' accommodation. The city's boutique hotels offer intimacy and personalized service. Most of the boutique hotels we've compiled in our top ten list fall into the luxury category with top-notch facilities, opulent surroundings and excellent service. They're effortlessly cool with interior design that's inviting and elegant. Staff is personable and warm, going out of their way to please and satisfy.
This compilation also includes hotels with that 'special something'; accommodation that's affordable yet stylish, sexy and intimate for the more budget-conscious traveler. These hotels such as the Number Eight, Sekeping Tenggiri and Jeumpa D'ramo are run by operators who personally supervise the daily operations of each hotel.
At our number one spot is the regal Carcosa Seri Negara - no other accommodation quite measures up to this exclusive heritage mansion with just five suites dressed in opulent furnishings. The Carcosa Seri Negara is worlds away from the city, enveloped in greenery and manicured surroundings on a secluded hilltop. The service, led by white-gloved butlers, is fit for royalty. Next at the number two position is the one-of-a kind Villa Samadhi- an intimate tropical retreat located in a quiet, upscale neighborhood just minutes away from the city center. Expect plush modern interiors with an Asian accent; it's a piece of paradise within the modern city. At number three is the ultra hip Hotel Maya - with just 207 rooms and a full service spa -it is the perfect example of a modern boutique hotel.
The Ritz Carlton comes in at number four, offering elegant rooms and butler service. Our number five position belongs to the Club@ Saujana, tucked away amidst tropical gardens, with its own golf course and spa. The Club@ Saujana, a half an hour drive outside the city, is a truly beautiful property that's intimate and personal.
